"actual dry pin weight" is a contradiction of terms.
Dry pin weight is the basic unmodified by ANY options pin weight and should never be used for planning.
Actual pin weights are more usefull.
You can get a good idea by using the GVWR of the trailer and multiply it by 20%
For safe handling, your actual pin weight should fall between 15% and 25% of actual loaded camper weight (with 20% optimum).
My Flagstaff 8526RLWS has an dry pin of 1100 pounds but the actual pin weight is closer to 1500 pounds.
